Answer : 7 x + y - 29 = 0

==============================

Equation of the given line : x - 7 y - 9 = 0

This line passes through Points A(2, -1) and B (9, 0)

It's Slope (m) = (1/7).

And equation of the line passing through any point say P (5, -6) and perpendicular to the given line will have slope = - 7.

=> y - (-6) = (-7) ( x - 5 )

=> y = - 7 x + 29

=> 7 x + y - 29 = 0 ................................ Answer ======>> Required Line
